Portugal’s Touriga Nacional grape is key to prized ports, but also makes gorgeous, fruit-rich wines. The Freitas family decided to plant it around the start of the century, and are reaping rich rewards as you’ll taste in this dark, four-Golds red.

The word ‘Nacional’ is reserved for treasures that fly the flag for Portugal. Touriga Nacional certainly does that. In 2005, the Freitas family planted the grape on their acclaimed Fava vineyard. In 2015 it produced a wine so good that it was bottled under the vineyard name for the first time ever, taking Gold on its maiden release. Another well deserved prize for this family estate. Dating back to 1920, Casa Ermelinda Freitas is run by fourth generation Leonor Freitas, who has been awarded a ‘Comendadora’ (equivalent to a Dame) for her services to Portuguese wine. Her daughter Joana follows in her footsteps. Aged in barrel, this rich red is packed with spicy berry, herb and mineral character. A top match with slow cooked beef or lamb.

"What a wonderful wine! Amazing rich berry flavours, but not heavy at all. We love it!" Online Review
